The French Revolution brought an end to these restrictions and Limoges flourished in the wake.
Shortly after the first Limoges factory was established, Louis XVI bought it.
For a time, production was still limited due to restrictions on the production of porcelain products.
He knew the beauty of the product and the marketability, as his own family had emigrated from Limoges.
By 1855, the demand for porcelain from Limoges in the United States called for Haviland to construct his own factory in the town.
So, when you see a piece of limoges porcelain, the mark you see is not from a particular studio.
